The In­dian PC mar­ket to fur­ther con­sol­i­date


The shrink­ing PC mar­ket is leading to con­sol­i­da­tion of the OEM ecosys­tem. Af­ter the exit of In­dian OEMs HCL and Wipro, it is time for smaller MNC OEMs to con­sol­i­date their pres­ence in In­dia. LG for in­stance ex­ited the note­book PC mar­ket last year. It is now be­ing spec­u­lated that Fu­jitsu is plan­ning an exit from the PC mar­ket in In­dia. While Fu­jitsu In­dia rep­re­sen­ta­tives are tight-lipped about it, some of its part­ners in­formed CRN that the com­pany has stopped ship­ping new prod­ucts, and is presently fo­cussed on clear­ing the In­dia in­ven­tory.

Based on part­ner feed­back, it is learnt that Sam­sung too is plan­ning to exit the en­try-level note­book PC mar­ket to fo­cus on high-end mod­els. Some Sam­sung part­ners even sug­gested that the com­pany may drive most of its high-end note­book sales through e-tail and LFRs, largely by­pass­ing the IT chan­nel.
